From IMDb: “An aging Manhattan socialite living on what’s barely left of her inheritance moves to a small apartment in Paris with her son and cat.”

Poster Rating: C

Review: Trying to fill up the blanket space with plaudits doesn’t make the design look that much more interesting. It might allow some to see what others are saying, but we’re probably past the point where such things matter to most passers-by.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: It’s difficult to get a grasp on the type of humor being employed here. Is it black humor, droll humor, winking humor, each type is given a brief reference and none of it quite sells the film as what it wants to be: a vehicle for Michelle Pfeiffer’s long-dormant Oscar ambitions.

Oscar Prospects:

The film moved into February to escape the pandemic and position itself closer to the Academy Awards, but this move puts it out of contention with most critics awards, so we’ll see how that works out for them as it was thought to be a contender at least for Michelle Pfeiffer.
